Rockarama Novelty Nasty of the Week

‘Respect Yourself’, Bruce Willis (1987)
No really, that Bruce Willis. He made a TV mockumentary about his alter-ego, a blues singer called Bruno Radolini (with cameos by Elton John & Ringo Starr plus others) & released an entire album of R&B covers, featuring The Temptations & Booker T. Jones.
No word on if Bruno gave Bruce a cut of the royalties.

This week’s Rockarama guest, Harry, even brought in a vinyl copy of the album to spin on air:

Harry also brought in not one, but two Rick Astley albums (neither of which featured ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’) & a Barbara Streisand album, but we agreed to never speak of it again.
